    I am so in love with Jagjit Singh's Ghazals and his beautiful voice.

    And i cannot even understand Hindi

    I cannot find any other artist who compares.

    It would be worth a trip to any country to see him live in concert

    Alas he died at young age

    Please recommend any Ghazal artists of this cailber

    I never understood why people went to live concerts with the advent of radio, tv, YouTUBE, but now I know the live experience is incomparable

    Please guide.

    Listening to such talented artists with voices of Angels is money well-spent

    :hello:There was a period i was listening more to LP records of Jagajit & chitra. Ghazals haunting . Krishna bhajans melodious lilting & melting hearts. Set harmony and mood slowly and steadily. Good to listen in right ambience at night after dinner with dull illumination

    Never mind that you’re ignorant of the language of lyrics. The tune and sound have that soothing vibrations are enough to get into our various realms in the body to harmonise our mind. The rhythm sets in and one is happy after the music played. The silence that follows at the end of play itself is powerful.

    He was seventy when he passed away? Young? :hmmm:

    Ghazal singers of his caliber ... it is hard to compare singers but I always find Farida Khanum soulful. If looking for male ghazal singers, no one can compare to Ghulam Ali and Mehdi Hassan.

    ETA: Just reread the question, you are looking for alive and upcoming singers.. the above are dead or 80+.
